    • Since references may refer to multiple polymerases, some references are counted in more than one family.
  • The graph of references over time indicates how many references were published and indexed by Polbase over time.
  • The graph of references by journal presents the number of references in the 10 most represented journals and an "Other" journal which includes all the remaining journals. Select a journal to see more details.

Using Polbase tables:


Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).


It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
